Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
This is the best 3-way money can buy. Unlike other 3-ways we hone our 3-ways 3 times so blowing o-rings is a thing of the past. Super short stroke. Super smooth pull. Unmatched reliability. Only available in chrome.
Product Availability 
The Free Flow Bullet 3-Way is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Some better 3-ways out there
Review: I received a Bullet 3-way on a Powerlyte Hybrid 'cocker that I bought used. My impressions are:

I. STRENGTHS

Fit & Finish

The Bullet is well-made, with no milling marks. The interior of the valve body is smooth and polished, and the piston has no burrs and holds the o-rings well.

Short Throw

The throw on this valve is shorter than most, and about equal to the Palmer's Quickswitch. It lets you shorten your trigger stroke, and allows for a faster rate of fire. The throw isn't as short as the Belsales/Nexxus or the Shocktech Bomb valves, however.

Reliability

I never saw any damage to the o-rings from this valve. It did not leak during the firing sequences. It did, however, leak a little on occasion when the marker was sitting on the bench or wall. This was due to the actuating rod being slightly out of alignment during those periods; it appears that the Bullet is a little more sensitive to anything touching the trigger rod than some of the other high-end valves.

II. WEAKNESSES

Leaking

As stated above, the Bullet appeared to me to be more sensitive to the actuating rod being touched or out of alignment than most high-end 3-ways. It is not a significant issue, and is less of a problem than on stock 3-ways.

Value

Most high-end 3-ways are about the same price. At the Bullet's price point, you can pick up the Belsales or the Shocktech Bomb 3-way, both of which are quicker and less leak-prone than the Bullet.
Conclusion: It's a good 3-way; if you get one in trade, it shouldn't be the first thing you replace. However, if you are buying a 3-way, I'd get the Bomb or the Belsales first.

Products Used:
-STO 3-way
-Shocktech Bomb <-- AMAZING!
Marker Setup: -2003 red cocker
-10" Red freak front w/ SS back and all inserts
-FF internals
-Mid weight hammer
-FF springs
-FF ram w/ qev's
-Chrome Shocktech bomb (i had a FF 3-way, but just replaced)
-Chrome Palmer Micro Rock
-Red CP Reg
-Chrome 32* Flame Drop w/ On/Off
-PMI Tank
-Redz cover
Strengths: Acuates alot better, and smoother. Not as smooth as the bomb.
Weaknesses: Not much shorter than the stock 3-way... Buy the Shocktech Bomb. Better value.
Review: Yea, well I bought this used for $5 and I loved the difference over the stock 3-way. Smoothe operation with better acuation. Buying new would be a bad value for the price; Go for the bomb. I like it much better. This is a nice 3-way. Looks good. I would use this 3-way on a slider or hinge; micer on a slider tho...
Conclusion: I like it; but Not as much as the bomb.

Products Used:
stock 3-way, sto, bomb, and bellsales 3-way
Marker Setup: impulse vision, max-flo, hsw front grip, k2 werm trigger, voodoo bolt, tapeworm, nd front cap, nd bio cap, sp brass hammer, strange derlin bolt pin, silk shot ram, rip valve, smart grips, twister lr, freak, ti boomstick, halo, warp (don't use it that much due to halo), and a old angel led frame converted to fit on my impulse (w/ some mods) made by imperial (werm) paintball. i thinks that's it.
Strengths: fast, no o-ring blowing
Weaknesses: expensive and no colours
Review: very fast and slick. if you don't mind slider frames get one put together by bellsales or freeflow and use it with this 3-way. you can tell the difference, and ohhhhhhh, what a difference it is. even vs. an sto it is a huge difference. the shape of this 3-way is also quite noticable and kool.
Conclusion: i would say this product is definitaly on par with a bellsales 3-way. works best with a ballanced and good set up. too bad it doesn't come in colours, but it is standard in chrome so at least you got your bling bling (if you want you can by your completely chromed cocker body kit from 4freeflow.com).
